Updating my Weber grill...

This is not my Bullet, nor is it my charcoal grill. This is my natural gas (NG) Weber grill that I've had for 13 years. It's a freaking rock star for convenience.

There were internal parts showing some significant wear and some were falling apart. The worst culprits were the flavorizer bars and the cooking grate. I searched and searched for reasonable replacement parts but holy moly they're expensive. Fortunately, I found a guy in Poplar Bluff, MO that makes stainless flavorizer bars for much less than Weber (or their retailers) charges for enameled steel. I got them today and they fit perfectly! I bit the bullet and paid $40 for new grates. Not much of a choice out there for those.

I thought about buying a new NG grill (NG is more money), but the similar model to mine (Weber Genesis Gold) is now pushing $1000! Sheesh! I paid $299 in 2000.

Everything else looks great. The SS burners are nearly pristine after all these years.

Anyone else been through a Weber update? It ain't cheap, but damn they last a long time.

Lol Is it because I said "everyone thinks they're a master"? Okay, did a say I was a master? Nope. I just do the basics when it comes to bbqin. Quick an easy use charcoal. If I wanna go all out I'll get some wood to smoke.


I don't see anything wrong with my post. If you like gas and can't taste it then good for you. I personally can taste it myself, that's why I said it sucks. I'm also not the only one who can taste it neither. I know several people like that. Everyone's pallet is different.

Do you hook the natural gas grill up to pipes coming into your house? Does it have a regulator before it enters the grill? Never even knew they made natural gas grills

nope , you dont use a regulator - the natural gas is already well regulated.

you are full of shit, you cant taste gas...if anything its charcoal that leaves a taste...

some like charcoal taste , some don't.....

gas is more flexible...since you can always add smoke via chips etc

you cant taste gas....its the lack of charcoal you are tasting

Always seemed to me anyway when cooking with propane, there was a nasty aftertaste.

So "nobody" can actually taste gas because you can't?
